We created a tone of voice that reflected the company’s new brand promise and rolled it out across all regions and departments – from HR and operations to marketing and customer service.
We implemented robust guidelines with real-life examples and practical tips, engaged more than 200 writers in face-to face workshops, and built a detailed communications toolkit to ensure that improvements were sustained.
More positive employee and customer feedback moved the needle – both internally and externally, resulting in significant satisfaction spikes.
Tone of voice guidelines implemented nationally across 18,500 employees brought a consistent voice to First Group’s communications – from its website and marketing collateral to recruitment adverts and customer complaint responses.
The new voice and supporting materials made employees feel valued, resulting in higher retention rates across the business.
